Alison Jean Cole travels the West in search of beautiful rocks in nature. She takes large chunks of rough material to cut into slabs on a really big rock saw, then the shapes are trimmed out of the slabs on a smaller rock saw. She uses successive grits to polish each stone by hand on a rudimentary faceting machine. The result are these gorgeous, unique and one of a kind pieces.
This bolo tie features alunite, tuff, and howlite and is mounted on a silver bolo bracket with a 42" nude genuine leather braided cord. Stone measures about 2" wide and 1.5" long.
